Defense Wins Championships…Even in Manufacturing

In basketball, specifically the NBA, many players can score at will. What separates the great ones are superstars that can defend as well. Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs is a superstar who can defend. He averages 21 points per game, and is the reigning Defensive MVP of the NBA.

Leonard is a notorious workaholic and lives a very, very modest lifestyle compared to many NBA superstars. In fact, he still drives a 1997 Chevy Tahoe! The person that knows Kawhi better than most is his coach and 5-time NBA champion coach Gregg Popovich. In a recent article in Sports Illustrated, Popovich states the following about Leonard, “He is the rare professional athlete who distinguishes between greatness and stardom. He wants the greatness badly,” Popovich says. “He doesn’t give a damn about the stardom.” You won’t find him on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. You probably won’t catch him in a photo shoot, on a red carpet or at an awards ceremony, even if he is the guest of honor. Check that – especially if he is the guest of honor. “He loves the game,” Popovich continues. “He ignores the rest of it.”

Just like the NBA, playing great defense in manufacturing is what separates great, long-term companies from the pack and a part of that great defense is your ERP software.
